"After surviving fourteen years of hell in a violently abusive marriage, Rosie Daniels finally summons the courage to flee for her life. But leaving her husband, Norman, for a new city and a new start is a very daunting prospect. It's hard for Rosie not to keep looking over her shoulder, and with good reason - Norman's a police officer with the instincts of a predator, a force of relentless terror and savagery ... a man almost mythic in his monstrosity. He's very good at finding people, even if he is losing his mind.

This is one of King's "better" "bad" efforts. By his own admission the book tries too hard, however, the story is still a good read and there's enough creepiness to go around.

This was a stellar read. I truly believe King needs more eccentric and strong woman leaders in his novels.
I highly recommend picking up Desperation next....has a good tie into this one.

A surprising change for Stephen King using a female main character and dealing with the issue of spousal abuse. One of the few novels where he actually did reasearch by contacting various help agencies to fully understand the issues, causes, effects, and solutions. Some of the characters reappear in Desperation and Regulators, which adds to character depth.
